Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many possible causes for a lack of fourth gear. If it's only missing fourth gear then it could be the overdrive solenoid, a mechanical failure in the overdrive unit, overdrive clutch failure, or overdrive piston leakage. If it's actually stuck in third gear then the issue is electrical.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to see what fault codes are setting. Have you read codes from the powertrain control module?
